In 2016 Vice President Joe Biden's son was caught in a scandal in Ukraine. The Prosecutor General of Ukraine was looking into the energy company Burisma, where Hunter Biden sat as a board member. Joe Biden pressed for the termination of the Prosecutor General Shokin, and an investigation by President Trump accused Biden of doing so only because of his son's position - not because of any corruption charges by the prosecutor. In newly released audio between Biden and the President of Ukraine, it seems the accusations by Trump's team were true.
In the audio, President Poroshenko admits that there was no wrongdoing by the prosecutor, Shokin, but Biden pressed that he must be fired. He negotiated a trade of a $1 Billion loan for the firing of the prosecutor general.
Biden can be heard saying,
“And I’m a man of my word...now that the new Prosecutor General is in place, we’re ready to move forward to signing that one billion dollar loan guarantee.”
